Robert Horrocks

Dear Her Majesty’s Treasury,

I would like to make a formal public request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 for the following information. I am looking for further information in regards to the information from this website:

Please can you tell me if a promissory note is an acceptable legal bill of exchange?

How should a person properly use a promissory note to be fully within the law?

Do you have an example/template of a promissory note?

If so please can you send me a copy of an example template?

Does a promissory note have to include any particular information and if so what information does a promissory note have to include?

In what instances/situations can a promissory note be used?

Do companies in the U.K. have to accept a promissory note as a legal bill of exchange or a commercial instrument?

What are the laws or regulations regarding if a company does not accept a promissory note?

How would someone follow or take matters further with regards to a company not accepting a promissory note?

Please can you send me all documentation/templates/articles by HM Treasury/examples relating or regarding promissory notes so that I can fully understand this matter further.

Yours faithfully,

Robert Horrocks
